Dear Nora & My Little Brother - It's Okay To Smile


Published February 24, 2001


The sets on this album were recorded live at the Humdinger Haus on February 26, 2000, an all-ages show that alwso saw sets from Dressy Bessy and the Aisler's set. Dear Nora, as most by now know, is one of the West Coast's mostsweet, infectious pop outfits. This is an early, warm set from them and is a charming testament to the genius of Katy Davidson. My Little Brother are long time MASA cohorts, and their set is an accurate capturing of them in all their raw, pop brilliance and unrehearsed stumblings.

Subject: Charming bands, bad recording
The fidelity of the recording isn't very good, but if you're not humming these songs later, you don't have a soul.
Dear Nora's wonderful cheery melodies and pop harmonies will soften all but the most callous of hearts.
The rather poor recording quality of this set, while forgivable considering this a live set, is unfortunate. My Little Brother sound like a great band. Melodic guitar textures and slick drumming provide a backdrop for well-delivered vocals. The melodies are strong but this isn't your usual pop fare. Check it out and if you like it, try and find a better example than this muddy recording.
